Focus Group: What outcomes matter most to you when considering your cancer treatment?

Cancer Research UK, the Office of Health Economics, RAND Europe and King’s College London are conducting two focus groups to explore what treatment outcomes are most important to cancer patients. 

Closing date: Closed

Location: London and Manchester

Focus Group dates: The first focus group will take place during the week commencing 25th June (Manchester).  The second focus group will take place in the middle to end of July (London).  

Payment and Expenses: Travel expenses to attend the meeting (up to a maximum of £50 per person). Every participant will also be offered an optional £30 honorarium.

Time commitment: One-off. Both focus groups will meet from 18:30 to 20:30.

About this opportunity

We know that most treatments are aimed to be curative or to prolong life but that wider factors -  such as side-effects and length of treatment -  can affect people’s quality of life. We therefore want to understand what matters most to patients when they’re considering treatment options.

The insight shared will inform a research study into potential alternative ways of paying for new cancer drugs in the NHS. We hope to identify an approach that is likely to improve clinical and patient outcomes and then pilot this in Greater Manchester – so through your involvement you can make a real difference!

If you are interested in participating in one of the focus groups please contact the research team for more information. They will send you all the relevant information about the project, and will be very happy to answer any questions.
